Filler Talk

Have your “fine” lines begun to etch a deeper groove into your skin… not to mention psyche…and starting morphing into (cue sinister music) full blown wrinkles?  Lets be Zen about it.  Take pride in each furrow as if it represents a hardship overcome. UGH, who are we kidding??  Let’s plump those babies up!

The world of dermal filler these days is wonderful for the patient.  Faces can be refreshed with a non surgical treatment like Juvederm XC. It is impossible to make a 50 year old look 20 again, but you can look the best you can for 50.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the safer longer lasting injectable such as the Hyaluronic Acid Juvederm is the number one injectable filler in 2011.  Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule much like a sponge- whose primary function is to bind and absorb water which creates volume in the face.

The most common area to treat is smile lines, vertical lip lines, marionette lines (down turned corners of the mouth) and plumping of the lips.  Juvederm is manufactured synthetically.  No testing is required so there is no risk of having an allergic reaction.  Side effects may include itching or redness that may occur at the injection site(s) swelling may last up to 7 days.  The basic procedure is to use a topical numbing cream on the skin which is applied to the areas that will be injected.  Juvederm XC is infused with lidocaine thus improving comfort during the injection.

So don’t stress about your wrinkles!!  (Seriously don’t stress it causes wrinkles) A smoother refreshed look is an injection away.  You can experience injectable gel with a quick in-office procedure and minimal down time. The results are immediate.  So what are you waiting for?  We want to make you “feel beautiful too”
